Hello All,

I am new to the board but am a local diver in socal looking for dive buddies. I am just wrapping up my AOW and getting started on my rescue in route to DM or higher....but I need to dive more before I get there. My weekly goal is a minimum of 2 dives a week. I am also employed full time and have a family so my time is tight but I always seem to work in the dives. So if anyone is in the area and wants to join in on any of these dives that would be great!

I don’t think you’ll have a problem meeting people on DiveBuddy in your area :)

Hey Oscar, I am an AOW diver in Corona, CA. I have been looking for local buddies as well. Give me a shout out at the next time you have a chance to get out there as I am rarely on this site to check messages. Cheers! I like to dive Anacapa, Seal Rock and Deadman’s

I have a last minute drop for our Saturday Farnsworth Bank trip. You should join us. We can sleep on the boat for free Friday night. Most divers know that Farnsworth trips get cancelled or diverted most of the time. We are expecting amazing, yet cold conditions tomorrow. You can meet 27 new buddies on this trip!

Hey Oscar,

I’m R E T I R E D and looking for dive Buddies for diving the Channel Islands out of Oxnard. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve been diving Anacapa and Eastend Santa Cruz about 40 years. I can dive mid-week or weekends Sea Conditions permitting. I make an over night dive trip on my boat splitting expenses, with Night Diving, (optional). If you are interested email me. We can workout the dive dates and times.

Thanks, Lance
